Friday Fives


1. Do you have any allergies?
I have a sulfa allergy and some pollen/mold allergies in the spring that can make for some miserable days. But better living through chemistry! Thanks, Flonase.

2. Do you have any phobias?
Not really. As I get older, I am less keen on big crowds, but I think that is more of a grouchy old man syndrome, rather than a phobia.

3. Do you have any chronic conditions that have changed your life?
Well, there is the heart thing and diabetes. Both are managed and on the mend.

4. Have you had any surgeries? Were there complications?
See above, I had the heart thing. Not a full on surgery (I was lucid for the entire thing.) But I have never been under the knife.

5. How are you going to die?
I joke that it will be a choking hazard caused by drinking water too fast. But it will probably be the heart thing.

  1. 1. I have seasonal pollen allergies that range in severity from year to year. This year has been a real doozy.

    2. Clowns. It’s an irrational fear, but it is deeply seated within me and has been my whole life.

    3. I have an implanted defibrillator in my chest in the event of cardiac arrhythmia. It hasn’t changed my life yet, and here’s hoping that it never goes off.

    4. Two on my knee, three on my shoulder, and a procedure to implant the aforementioned device.

    5. Someone walking up behind me and yelling “BOO!”

  2. 1) Pollens, cats, shellfish, thanx dad.

    2) There are many things I’m not a fan of but a true phobia not that I’ve discovered yet.

    3) not yet, & im trying to keep it that way.

    4) wisdom teeth removed, knee scoped, appendix taken out.

    5) probably due to saying some smart ass remark to the wrong person at the wrong time.
